MSc, MEng, PhD
- Biochemical Engineering
- Polymers and Reaction Chemistry
- Process Systems Engineering
DOCTORAL PROGRAM (Ph.D.):
- Research-based degree
- Fully funded for four years
- Four graduate courses (with a Master’s degree)
- Seven graduate courses (without a Master’s degree)
- Two seminars
- Comprehensive Exam
The objectives for the PhD program are to conduct research inquiry at the forefront of discipline knowledge, educate students in advanced concepts and techniques, foster independent and critical thought, and develop technical leadership. To successfully complete the PhD program, the candidate must make an original contribution to existing knowledge in the field of study. Candidates are prepared for careers in academic research and teaching, industrial research and development, and government research. Candidates are expected to have acquired autonomy in conducting research, critical assessment of research, and preparing scholarly publications.
These objectives are achieved through a combination of formal course work, independent research, teaching and research assistantships, and a research thesis making original contributions to the field of study.
Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.)
